T-Pain cancels South America show

Promoter says rapper received death threats

GEORGETOWN, Guyana -- R&B singer T-Pain has canceled a concert in Guyana after receiving what a promoter calls "credible death and kidnapping threats."

Kerwin Bollers says Monday's performance for Carnival celebrations was called off after e-mail and phone threats from an unidentified source.

Police commander Leroy Bollers reporters Sunday that authorities will investigate.

T-Pain would have been one of the best-known U.S. singers to perform in the South American nation in years.

He is credited with popularizing synthesizer-assisted vocals in R&B, and recorded the albums "Rappa Ternt Sanga" and "Epiphany."
